Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) Market Report, Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2027

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), otherwise known as Grade IV astrocytoma, is the most aggressive form of brain cancer and characterized as a disease with one of the highest unmet needs in oncology, with patients having a median overall survival (OS) between one and two years. The lack of approved therapies is mainly due to the inability of drugs to penetrate the blood-brain barrier (BBB). The only targeted agent approved for recurrent GBM patients is Roche’s Avastin (bevacizumab), approved in the US in 2008 and Japan in 2013 and used off-label in the 5EU and China. Otherwise, generic temozolomide in combination with radiotherapy makes up the majority of the GBM market and is considered the standard of care across the 8MM.

This is driven by the launch of nine late-stage agents, primarily immunotherapies and small-molecules that can bypass the limitations of the BBB, which are expected to launch at premium-prices. In recent years, many late-stage agents were discontinued due to multiple factors. Developers will need to be astute in terms of their clinical development of novel therapies in order to secure approvals. Despite this, a myriad of opportunities remain in the GBM space with room for innovative therapies that are more efficacious than the current standard of care (SOC).
